SILK

Harper's Bazaar (India) - - BAZAAR STYLE -

Though weav­ing metal into silk has been an In­dian thing for cen­turies (Be­narasi and Kan­jee­varam weaves used gold and sil­ver), Gau­rav Jai Gupta has taken it a step fur­ther. He has wo­ven metal yarn with mono-fil­a­ment silk to cre­ate fab­rics that look del­i­cate and translu­cent. This pro­vides the struc­ture and strength that al­lows for jack­ets and dresses to be cut with­out the fray­ing or rip­ping of tra­di­tional silk if it were made into th­ese styles.
